Samba Server problems...

I compiled Samba 1.9.18p10 on Solaris 2.5.1 and started testing with my Win95 client.
I added the startup entries to /etc/rc3.d and /etc/inet.conf.

[1.] I can send a message to Winpopup on my Win95 client but I get a broken pipe error when I try to send a message to any other client on the same subnet.

[2.] I want to be able to browse this server from a Win95 client located on a remote subnet which is participating in
a WAN consisting of Solaris servers, Win95 clients, and routers.

[3.] I want to be able to map a drive from the Samba server to a Win95 client located on a remote subnet.

[4.] We need to setup an Enterprise Mail system over the WAN. We are currently using Microsoft Mail using a PC gateway and dial-up connections.
What do I need to implement Enterprise Mail using Solaris
and Windows95 clients with Inbox?

[5]  How can I open a Samba session from my Win95 client DOS prompt?

I have printed some documentation, but I would like some advice on what and how to configure Samba to accomplish these requirements.

1) see 2)
2) see BROWSING.txt
    AFAIK, best is if your Samba server is a gateway for the subnets, otherwise you
    also need to read DOMAIN.txt carefull
    in samba.cnf add:
         remote announce = remote_network_broadcast/DOMAIN
    instead of the broadcast address, you also may try a browser server address
3) see 2)
4) Microsoft Mail is proprietary (remeber M$), it'll be  hard to find software for
     Solaris supporting this
     I suggest using a mail exchanger based on SMTP protocol
5) install M$'s LANMAN client for DOS, then
         net use x: \\samba_server\share_name
